ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4 Overclocking Memory with Airplane-Shaped Heatsinks Released

DDR4 is something that only enthusiast-grade PCs based on Intel's upcoming technology will support in the near future. Despite that, though, many of the modules that meet the new specifications' guidelines don't look the part of enthusiast hardware.

Sure, some have heatsinks, but not many, and those that do aren't really available yet. ADATA decided that it was high time it stopped being among the companies whose DDR4 memory modules and kits were just a tease. So, it has finally launched them. You can recognize them in stores by their distinctive red heatspreaders. Distinctive not just because of the color, but because of the shape that resembles an airplane's wings. ADATA has named the product line XPG Z1. The RAM comes in CL 17-17-17 timings and has a clock of 2,800 MHz, which is a fair bit above the 2,133 MHz standard speed.

Then again, if DDR3 can be overclocked to within an inch of its life, it's obvious that DDR4 will be no different, even if it's just starting out. After all, with a voltage of 1.2V (vs DDR3 1.35V-1.5V), it already consumes 20% less energy, 40% if power saving features engage, so there's room for clock tweaks. Sadly, the prices of the ADATA XPG Z1 memory (up to 16 GB capacities will be available) have not been disclosed.
